What is the correct tense to describe habitual or repeated actions in the past?
Regarding my duties in the past, would it be correct to say:?
At home I used to make beds, I also washed dishes, I cooked and I took out the garbage.

Your tenses are fine. For past repeated actions, it's always okay to use the simple past. Optionally, you may use "used to" or even the auxiliary "would." For past repeated *states,* the use of "would" in this sense is not possible.

The tenses are perfect here. There should be a full stop before 'I also' as that it the start of a new sentence and I would suggest using 'I' a little less. You can use it once in this sentence to make it sound more natural.
At home I used to make beds. I also washed dishes, cooked and took out the garbage.
Other than that, it is perfect.
